Choose only one master- Nature.

Rembrandt

I am a French visual artist.

The works of art I create are intimately connected to my life’s journey, my aspirations, and my beliefs. My art is a projection of myself on to the world, reflecting the most intimate parts of my being.

 

I first recognized the deep meaning of art through my time spent restoring ancient murals in France. Restoring murals for seven years gave me the opportunity to work closely with the ancient knowledge of colors and techniques. Since the most ancient times, we have sourced local materials and transform them in order to express ourselves, and create art. 

 

Today, we tend to forget that each drop of paint is directly connected to the resources of our planet Earth. Minerals, pigments, soil, plants, and animals are the main components of paint colors we use to materialize our vision on canvas.  Through my art, my aim is to reconnect myself and the viewer to the integrity of nearly lost ancient techniques and the innate connection to nature.

Before I start to paint, I enjoy doing a small ritual: light up a candle or burn incense to honor nature for giving me a part of herself with her resources so that I am able to transform them into a new creation.  My paintings often have an earthy tone in them: soft, harmonious and bright reflections of my perception of nature.  

 

In parallel with my experience of restoration work, my love for travel and seeking life experiences brought me to discover many cultures and countries all around the world such as Cambodia, Laos, Turkey, Europe, Egypt, and North America. Travel has opened my vision of the world, helping me to discover myself more and more at a deeper level.

During my travels when everything was new, unknown and unexpected, I started to tune more into my real-self enabling the development of my hyper sensibility and my intuition.  To learn how to balance my body, mind, and emotions I had to experience, understand, and acknowledge my inner-self, It wasn't an easy task.  I started to understand more how the energy world works in Canada. By practicing different modalities of healing, I became more aware of how my body speaks to me and how my hands can sense and identify the unseen. 

Today, I cannot start my day without clearing my energy. Every morning and evening I conduct rituals to clear the energy accumulated throughout the day and help me to stay balanced.  When I have the opportunity to also help others with my knowledge and skills, it fulfills my day of happiness and joy.

Awakening is not changing who you are,

but discarding who you are not.

I honor the place in you where the entire Universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty, and peace within you because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.

I have been living in Portland, Oregon, USA since 2017. I believe everything happens for a reason. It is in this new place, I had to reinvent myself.

 

I began to realize that humanity is inseparable from creativity. By combining my art and my sensitivity to energies, I opened myself to a new beginning where creativity and intuition are intimately connected. 

 

My tool to create is the paint; my drive to create is my sensibility and intuition.

 

This new beginning gave birth to Fullyart, a place where art, as a

symbolic picture of the universe, can help transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones and to assist with healing.

Why did I call my business Fullyart?

 

Because life is an art on its own. Art is not only painting, but it is also a journey in itself of one’s perception and appreciation of life.  Life is fully a creation by itself. 

 

Fullyart is a place to assist you in your journey through art. and energy healing.  I believe Fullyart will evolve, change, and transform throughout time because you will be part of it. You will tell me how I can assist you in the best way possible as to find your life purpose, your drive, and your peace within. 

 

Because healing ourselves takes time, effort, and love, we cannot do it alone, and I am here to support you in your journey.

 

You’ll find on my website that I share tips, online classes, and art and energy healing exercises to help you overcome your obstacles. I will show you how I am using art to heal and to empower others. 

 

Thank you for reading. 

 

Love & Light.
